YWCA Now Offers Special Needs Fitness Class

Posted: Thursday, August 04, 2016

YWCA Bergen County now offers “Music and Movement Fitness Class”, a special needs program for children ages 6 through 12 years. This class is designed for children with intellectual and development delays, including autism, with self-help skills to independently participate.

Music and movement are stimulating for children’s physical, emotional and intellectual growth and can positively impact their educational experience. This program is designed to keep children focused and engaged by involving them with exercise, musical instruments, puppets, drumming and parachute play.

Instructor Lisa Powers, aka Lisa La La, has been designing and teaching children’s music and physical fitness programs since 2001 in preschools, daycares and public schools throughout Bergen County. She holds a B.S. in Music Business from NYU.

Classes are held Thursdays from 5:00 to 5:45pm at 112 Oak Street, Ridgewood, NJ. Registration opens Monday, August 15th and program session runs from September 6th through October 29th. For more information or to enroll, please contact the Membership Department at 201-444-5600 x400.
